Just received a call from my surgical nurse. We had a great conversation about my Fluid intake and Protein. I need to up my protein and I also need to up my fluid intake. She told me if I have any question to give her a call it's great to have the one on one help.

Okay just got my times...I have to be at the hospital tomorrow morning at 7:30 am and surgery should be between 9:30 and 10. I am sooooo nervous. I'm worried that since my BMI is over 50 I will have complications.... I've had many surgeries and have never been this nervous. Amazingly though, the one person in my life that I thought would be the least supportive has stepped up and has been amazing. I hate to ask but I have 2 requests...can I get some words of encouragement and maybe a funny one liner for a smile. Sorry that I'm rambling...nerves.

You will be fine! I was TERRIFED too! I cried the whole time at the hospital before my surgery. My mom's BMI was over 50 when she had her sleeve. She will be two years out in December. Make sure you let us know how you are doing. Not sure if you are the praying type, but I will say one for you anyway.

What do you call cheese that isn't yours?

Nacho cheese!

Yes, just went there =)

You will do great! I was super duper nervous too. But you'll get that feel good medicine and you'll wake up like "it's over"???? no joke!

My one liner is: "burp"

Because after surgery you'll do a lot of that!????

@@Vsglady You're going to do great! Don't be afraid to ask for pain meds. They're definitely worth having in the hospital. They'll make you float like a cloud! :) Enjoy it

@@Vsglady good luck tomorrow sweetie! Stay positive & glad you found additional support. We all need it. One thing I did wrong was waited too late to ask for pain meds. If you feel the the pain coming on, like my nurse said...get ahead if it before it gets too bad. PRESS THAT NURSE BUTTON! Will pray for you,

Unfortunately, I have no jokes but looks like you got a few good ones from our sleeve sisters, they made me lol too. I so love our group.

Just checking in, 1 week out and feeling pretty good. Started full liquid diet today and getting energy back. Unfortunately the night I was in the hospital my dog fractured his femur and had surgery the next day. He has kept me on my toes????

Frienenn, im sorry about your dog. Hopefully he much better now. Full liquids is definitely better than clear.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
